Zach leads the Belfer Center's project in Information and Communications 
Technology and directs the Harvard component of the joint Harvard-MIT 
ECIR initiative in cyber security. Zach's research focuses on the 
strategic management of collaboration across the boundaries of 
organizations, sectors, and citizens where information and 
communications technologies are critical enablers or obstacles. Of 
special interest are issues of people and politics; platforms, policy, 
and performance in matters of defense and intelligence; civic and 
political engagement; education, public health and public safety; and 
related areas.

Zach has held senior and executive positions in government and industry. 
He served with Boston Mayor Kevin H. White in the Office of Management 
and Budget; District Attorney Elizabeth Holtzman of Brooklyn as Special 
Assistant District Attorney for Policy and Planning; the New York State 
Attorney General as Chief, Information Services Division for the New 
York State Organized Crime Task Force; and the Chancellor of the New 
York City Public Schools as Director of Public Safety. He was executive 
director of the Financial Services Technology Consortium, formed by 
Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and other leading financial 
institutions and technology companies for collaboration on issues 
of cross-institution identity management; cyber security; payments 
processing; and resiliency.
